Pacific U. President Will Address 
Graduates of George Fox College 



Dr. W. C. Giersbach, president of 
Pacific university, Forest Grove, 
Oregon, will deliver the commence- 
ment address to the graduating 
class May 30, in the GFC auditor- 
ium. 

After completing his high school 
and college education in five years, 
Dr. Giersbach received his bach- 
elor's degree from Northland col- 
lege, Ashland, Wisconsin, in 1924 
and later received a Doctor of 
Divinity degree from the same col- 
lege. Following his college years 
he spent several years in Ohio. 



Before his coming to Pacific un- 
iversity in January, 1941, Dr. Giers- 
bach had been associated with the 
Congregational Christian churches 
in Illinois, where he was pastor 
and state superintendent. 



Dr. and Mrs. Carey Complete Plans 
For Retirement in Hawaiian Islands 



- 



The Lighter Side 



Co-ed Raises 
Social Problem 

"Just as I thought," mused Gay 
Foley, senior sociology minor, 
when a report she had written for 
social problems 202 was returned 
recently. 

Working on the assumption that 
these regularly assigned collateral 
reading reports were not read by 
the instructor, Miss Foley concoct- 
ed an ingenious device by which to 
test the diligence of the prof. 

"Near the end of the paper," 
Cay reports, "I inserted a sentence 
to this effect: 'Mr. Instructor, if 
ynu read this, please place a check- 
mark here'." 

You're probably way ahead of 
me by now; that's right, the paper 
was reurned without a check- 
mark. 

Oh well, we wonder how many 



Dr. Gervas A. Carey, present in- 
structor in Bible and Greek at 
George Fox college, with his wife. 
Amy G. Carey, are leaving from 
Seattle on June 6 to move to Ha- 
waii. ■ 

Dr. and Mrs. Carey have sold 
their Dundee home to Mr. and Mrs. 
S. C. Johnson of The Dalles. Soon 
aftci commencement they plan to 
leave for Seattle where they will 
trke the plane after visiting a few 
days with friends there. 

The Careys will join their daugh- 
ter, Elizabeth, in Honolulu. She 
has been librarian in the territor- 
ial library of Hawaii for eight 
years. There Dr. Carey plans to 
build a new home where they will 
retire. 

Dr. and Mrs. Carey first moved 
to Newberg in 1927 where Dr. 
Carey served as pastor of the lo- 
cal Friends church until 1929. and 
again later from 1939 to 1942. He 
began teaching at George Fox col- 
lege, then Pacific college, part 
time in 1940 and 1941, and has 
taught full time since then except 
for a one-year's leave of absence 
because of illness in 1946-47. Also. 



According to Dr. Carey, "we 
have enjoyed the work and fine 
friends here and leave with good 
wishes for the school, the faculty, 
and student body and everyone."

This year's graduating seniors 
will be specially honored at the 
alumni banquet scheduled for 7:00 
p. m., Friday evening, May 30, in 
the college dining hall.

by Alumni association president 
Roger Minthorne ('47), of Port- 
land, follows the banquet. 



Choir and Guests 
Travel to Salem 
For Annual Feed 

Twenty-seven members of the 
a cappella choir and their guests 
traveled to the American Legion 
hall in Salem last Friday evening 
for their annual choir banquet. 

Following the steak dinner, 
choir president Gerald Lemmons 
presented Director Mrs. Lydia Mc- 
Nichols with a desk pen from the 
choir as a token of their appre- 
ciation. 

A musical reading, "Fishing," 
was given by Miss Barbara Jean 
Sill with Barbara Blake accom- 
panying. "In the Usual Way" was 
Miss Sill's encore. 

The remainder of the evening

Our President Speaks 

It may safely be said that among all the ages of 
man, none ever has held so great a challenge as the 
present day. Communication of all men with each 
other is more easily accomplished than formerly. In 
the beginning of the human race education had its be- 
ginning in the home, but the church furnished inspira- 
tion and organization for the growth of education. 

Many claim today that the state has prior claim 
to educate our children and youth. Those who believe 
the Bible and in the leadership of the Holy Spirit be- 
lieve that Christians have the greatest responsibility 
in the field of education. Christian education not only 
has produced the most noble and most able charact- 
ers the world has known, but also has prepared the 
souls of men for an eternity with God. 

We must calmly and deliberately face the facts 
before us: if it cost Jesus Christ His life to purchase 
us and give us the gospel, it will cost us most of life's 
comforts to propagate that gospel. 

Some people lightly esteem an earthly soldier be- 
cause of the business he is in. Thus they brush aside 
any comparison of making a similar sacrifice for the 
purpose of spreading the gospel. 

We have lightly esteemed the sacrifices of pro- 
fessors at George Fox college and similar schools as 
though that were the highest position such professors 
were capable of holding. Let us correct the fallacy of 
this thinking and "highly esteem those who labor 
among us for their work's sake." The measure of a 
Christian is his value in prayer. The outward life will 
keep abreast of true praying. 

May every student seek God's will without com- 
promise, and may every friend of the college pray and 
sacrifice that God will prosper His work. It hath 
pleased God to make His tabernacle with man — 
mortal man. , 

It has been a blessing of God to labor in His vine- 
yard at GFC. I am deeply grateful to all faculty mem- 
bers, students, Board of Trustees and Corporation 
members, and friends of the college for their many 
kindnesses and for the privilege of having served in 
your midst. May we walk worthily of the vocation 
wherewith we are called. 



Gratefully yours, 
PAUL E. 



PARKER 



And Now We Go . . . 

Mr. GFC student sits in a shadowed corner of a 
classroom, gazing hazily at the book before him. 
Shafts of sunshine outside beckon invitingly. The 
door stands open. Open to what? All will be passing 
through that door soon, some to return, some not. 
Seniors will go out with a feeling of accomplishment 
and a task to perform, others with goals yet unat- 
tained. 

This vacation time holds many joys and also some 
disappointments. In the outcome it will be, however, 
exactly what we make it — no big achievements, per- 
haps, but memories of joy brought to others, lessons 
learned, victories gained, and decisions made. 

The door stands open. Open to what? 



By Jo 

Not even June yet — and the 
weddings are "busting out all 
over!" 

First on the agenda will be Rog- 
er Smith's/ ceremonies tomorrow 
evening. He will wed Eulalia 
Ketchum in the South Salem 
Friends church. 

Sermonette 

'Ye Are Witnesses' 

By Betty Hockett 

"... therefore ye are my wit- 
nesses, saith the Lord, that I am 
God." Isaiah 43:12b. 

A wonderful challenge for each 
Christian is contained in the first 
five words of this verse! When a 
politician seeks election, he hires 
friends to campaign for him. He 
does this in order that people may 
develop desire to vote for him. 

All Christians are selected as 
"campaign managers" for Christ. 
He is seeking to reign supremely 
in the hearts and lives of all 
people. It is the job of His wit- 
nesses to tell others of God, and 
then to live righteously before 
them, that they may have a de- 
sire to know Him, too. 

In what way are Christians ad- 
monished to witness for Christ? 
"... be thou an example of the 
believers, in word, in conversation, 
in charity, in spirt, in faith, in pur- 
ity," I Timothy 4:12. The extent 
to which a Christian lives his test- 
imony daily will determine to a 
great degree whether a sinner will 
want to know Him, too. 

Since political managers use 
every possible opportunity for tell- 
ing of their candidate, shouldn't 
Christians do as much for God ? 

We — you and I — are His wit- 
nesses! If we fail, who will do the 
job? 



Sympathy 



The Associated Student Body 
extends sincere sympathy to 
Wallace Delano at the death of 
his mother, Mrs. Winifred De- 
lano. 

"When Christ, who is our life, 
shall appear, then shall ye also 
appear with him in glory." Col. 
3:4. 



"And when did you two meet?" 

"He asked if he could walk me 
home from prayer meeting the 
first week of school!" she quickly 
replied, her brown saucer eyes 
sparkling with excitement. 

And that wasn't all that sparkl* 
ed, for on her finger was a dia- 
mond — surprise of surprises. 

Yes, Wanda Smith, a Medford, 
Oregon freshman, and Marion 
Clarkson from Greenleaf, Idaho, 
are planning a wedding in. July, 
after which they will reside in 
Newberg or Portland — that is, af- 
ter the honeymoon. 

A bridal shower was given for 
Wanda in Kanyon hall parlor Wed- 
nesday evening where she receiv- 
ed many lovely gifts. Ruth Can- 
field and Joan DeZell were host- 
esses. 



Freshman Barbara ("Bobbie") 
Blake is to marry Frank Starkey 
on Sunday, June 1. Bride-to-be 
Bobbie was feted with a shower 
last Monday night. The bridal 
party will include Dick Beebe, 
class of '51, Larry Wyman, class 
of '52, and Rosemary Ramsey. 

The day following the Blake- 
Starkey nuptials will find Martha 
Lemmons becoming a preacher's 
wife in the South Salem Friends 
church. Paul Puckett, class of '52, 
will be her bridegroom in the eve- 
ning ceremonies on June 2. They 
plan to enter the ministry soon. 

The Canfield-Field rites will be 
held in the East Whittier (Califor- 
nia") Friends church. Senior prexy 
Bill has chosen classmate Howie 
Harmon, '52, as his best man. Fu- 
ture plans? "Pending further in- 
vestigation," says humorist Field. 

In GFC's final summer wedding 
freshman Wanda Smith will be- 
come Marion Clarkson's bride. Af- 
ter the mid-July marriage in Med- 
ford the pair will live in Portland. 

Lois Bain and Woody Fletcher, 
who announced their engagement 
in February, plan a June wedding 
in 1953. 

Wanda Pierson, fiancee of ASB 
President Ralph Beebe, told us 
recently that their wedding will 
take place next year "as soon as 
school is out." Unless, of course, 
we inherit a million dollars this 
summer," Ralph added hastily. 



WAA Sees the Sea; 
Returns Sans Burns 

By "Poochie" Perry 

Was everyone overjoyed to see 
the WAA members home from 
their retreat? We wanted to bring 
back home some shiny new sun- 
burns to show off — but the weath- 
er wouldn't co-operate. 

Leave it to women to forget 
things. Besides forgetting a bed 
roll, we had to phone back for 
someone to bring the milk. But 
the eggs were there — right under 
me all the way, and I didn't even 
break or hatch a one of them. 

We stayed at the "Chapel by the 
Sea." Of course, how were we to 
know that little word by included 
a path, a long rickety wooden 
bridge, stairs going up and then 
the longest, wobbliest stairway 
I'd ever seen, with a ladder-like 
obstacle course at the bottom. 

Some of the girls got nerve 
enough to go swimming. Then they 
came out and shivered all night 
long. 

Just one decision that come out 
of the week-end. We plan to con- 
fiscate some of the boys' old T- 
shirts and use them for rags on 
the next school clean-up day. We 
need ours. 

There was some rumpus about a 
fire the first night. It was only 
a smoking fireplace, so it's just 
as well that I didn't wake up for 
it. 

Two girls brought in a couple 
of live crabs to boil while we were 
cooking supper. PU! And they 
didn't even give us a bite! 

All in all, we -had a very un- 
boyable time.

Just one more week to go. Say, 
its just about time to start pack- 
ing to go home. Guess Til have to 
rent a freight car to ship every- 
thing I've collected home in. I 
was just checking over the things 
I have to load when a stumbled 
across my American lit. book. I 
always did wonder what became 
of that thing over Thanksgiving 
vacation. 

The WAA girls told me they 
were going to the coast for a week- 
end of rest and relaxation, but 
from everything I heard they did 
very little of that. I heard sum- 
pin' about sleepin' three in a bed. 

The other noon everyone in the 
dining hall sang a little song; 
Wanda Smith "walked around the 
table; everyone clapped. When I 
asked the person next to me what 
that was for he said, "Why, didn't 
you know Marion Clarkson was 
back from idaho? Look at the 
fourth finger on her left hand." 

The botany class went to the 
coast last week to study biologi- 
cal specimens, they said. All re- 
turned home with nothing worse 
than wet feet. You can ask Sam 
Wang, our Formosan student, what 
that rope of a thing is hanging 
from the tree out there. They eat it 
where he comes from. I sure hope 
no one gets tangled up in that and 
sorta loses their head. 

I thought I saw Mutt and Jeff 
the other night, but on second look 
I discovered it to be Garth Reece 
and Joan DeZell on their way to 
hear Marilyn Barnes sing and 
Maribeth McCracken play the or- 
gan. 

Incidentally, there is a rather 
exclusive contest being held on our 
campus. Rosemarj> Ramsey and 
Lucy Edmundson are the sole en- 
trants I hear by the grapevine 
that first prize is Dave Elliott. 

Men, here is a little tip you 
might lend an ear. to. You had 
better start getting friendly with 
Gay Foley. Rumor has it she is 
going to buy a '51 Plymouth. 
Hurry up and you might avoid the 
rush! 

Paul Stanfleld, renowned wrest- 
ler and prize fighter, and Virginia 
Peters, lady weight lifter, joined 
the baseball team for a trip to see 
the Portland Beavers in action the 
other night. 

Going to the coast seems to be 
a mighty popular pastime these 
days. Just last week John Wood 
and Dorothea Wilkins, Jim De- 
Lapp and Pat Keppinger, Larry 
Wyman and Joan DeZell went to 
the beach for the day. 

I don't know how I'd have ever 
written a line this time if it 
wasn't for the choir banquet. 
Really a big deal! Why, Muriel 
Hoover even brought up a pal 
from Oregon State. Other- couples 
of local interest were; Bob Sharn- 
less and Lois Burnett, Paul Stan- 
field and Dorothy Williams 
(sounds like old times). Thanks a 
lot girls; if the fellows would only 
co-operate this well, this job would 
be a snap. 

Well, I've got to be heading off 
for home now, but I'll see you in 
September. 

The question of the week seems 
to be: Who am I? It has been an- 
swered by ex-editor Larry Wy- 
man. I am none other than shy, 
retiring Leland Brown. You 
wouldn't have guessed, would you? 
My motto is this: 

A wise old owl sat in a tree 
And uttered "who," his only 
word. 

The less*' he spoke, the more 

he heafd. 
Why can't we be like that wise 
old bird?

CHAPEL DIGEST: 

Student Body Sits Through Ten Chapels 
Ranging From "Concern 7 to Art Exhibit 



Duririff the past two weeks the 
student body has attended various 
unusual chapels, ranging from a 
Quaker "concern" to an art-in- 
progress exhibit. 

In Fred Baker's challenge, he 
aaked the student body to answer 
"Why has the Quaker church fail- 
ed to make headway?" "We're 
small," he concluded, "because we 
want to be small." He reminded 
his listeners that the remedy is 
sacrifice and loyalty to one's own 
church. 

Rev. Hebber Hettener, promo- 
tional man for the West Indies 
Mission, offered a program of 
"Non-Compromise." 

Last Thursday's chapel talk was 
given by Miss Irene Webster- 
Smith, an Irish Quaker and mis- 
sionary to Japan.

Miss Sill Discloses 
Next Year's Plans 

Miss Barbara Jeanne Sill, at 
present music instructor at GFC, 
announces that she will continue 
work toward a master's degree in 
musicology at the University of 
Washington next year. 

She expects to reside at her Se- 
attle home and to be awarded her 
degree in August, 1953. 

She interrupted graduate work 
and a fellowship at Bob Jones un- 
iversity last year to teach piano 
and music theory at GFC this 
year. In addition she is head resi- 
dent at Edwards hall, the off- 
campus women's dormitory. 

The purpose in continuing her 
studies is to prepare for further 
work in the field of education. "A 
master's degree is a necessary tool 
for a college teacher," she explain- 
ed seriously. 

' "I like teaching here," she add- 
ed, smiling, "and would enjoy re- 
turning after I have a master's 
iegree."

Stove Explodes 

Disaster visited the college 
dining hall last week with the 
explosion of one of the gas 
ovens. 

Miss Leona White, head cook, 
and Miss Jessie Wakefield, next 
year's cook, both suffered leg 
bruises from contact with the 
oven door. 

The cause for the mishap is 
not known, as that particular 
oven had not been used that 
day. 



Rev. Baker Speaks 
On Question 'Why?' 

George Fox college students 
gave their undivided attention 
Friday, May 16, to guest chapel 
speaker Fred Baker, pastor of the 
Hillsboro Friends church, as he 
challenged young people to "sac- 
rificially give" to extend the Quak- 
er church in the Northwest. 

In seeking an answer to the one- 
word question, "Why?", Reverend 
Baker gave possible reasons why 
the Friends as a denomination 
have remained small in numbers 
throughout the years. 

Speaking from twenty years of 
ministerial experience, pastor Bak- 
er discounted suggestions that the 
Friends movement is small be- 
cause of doctrinal differences, 
strict discipline, lack of ritual, or 
financial insufficiency. 

Baker discussed the possibility 
that the Quaker society is small 
because "Quakers want it to re- 
main small". He noted that if 
God meant for 'the Quaker 'church 
to be a small church, it was cer- 
tainly fulfilling its purpose. Rev- 
erend Baker pointed to the many 
former Quakers now serving in 
other denominations because of 
their outstanding training and re- 
ligious zeal. 

In closing, speaker Baker urged 
young people to consecrate them- 
selves and to expand the church 
into the needy areas of the great 
Northwest.

THE CRESCENT 



Friday, May 23, 1952 




Sp&Ul Scan&haa/id 

Athletically speaking, this year has been one of the most outstand- 
ing in the history of George Fox college. 

The Quakers won the Metropolitan conference championship in 
basketball and track, and will tie for first place with Concordia if they 
win this afternoon's baseball game. The conference ' 
did not operate in football. 

In all sports, excluding track, George Bales' 
forces won 25 and dropped only 13. Track, under the 
coaching of Woody Fletcher, saw wins in a dual meet I 
with Reed and a triangular affair featuring GFC, 
Clark, and Lower Columbia. 

Especially pleasant for George Fov rooters is 
lite dominance held over Reed, the arch enemy of 
the Quakers. In football it was 51-0 and 27-0. The Ralph Beebe 
basketball scores were 55-51 and 11-63. Baseball victories were 9-0 
and 12-8, and a lone track triumph was 64 '/ t to 48 '/ 2 . The girls main- 
tained the record with 8-1 and 23-22 softball wins. 

In all, George Fox won. nine of nine athletic events between the 
two schools. 

8 * « » * 

Larry Jansen fans are happy to see the great, New York Giant 
star get off to a good start again this season. A sore shoulder has 
limited his action, but the Verboort, Oregon, pitcher won his first three 
before dropping one Wednesday. Jansen made a very favorable impres- 
sion on local baseball fans on "Larry Jansen night", held in the high 
school auditorium last winter. 

We would like to pay tribute to Coach Nurd McGrath, a man the 
athletes of George Fox college have come to appreciate very much. 
"Mac" willingly gives' of his time to come and coach the Quaker base- 
ball team. Though the turnout is not always encouraging, Coach Mc- 
Grath consistently turns out winning teams. 

So here's to a really popular coach, Barney McGrath. 
***** 

Lcttermcn the Quakers will lose by graduation include: football — 
Cliff Ralphs, Bill Field, Howie Harmon, John Williams, Bud Mardock, 
Gerald Lemmons and Bill Mardock; basketball— Gerald Lemmons and 
Bill Field; baseball — Bill Mardock; track— none. This is a heavy toll 
in foottall. Coach George Bales is depending on plenty of freshmen 
to fill the gap. 

***** 

Five men received track letters in yesterday's chapel. Those let- 
tering were Marvin Hampton, Elmer Kendall, Paul Ralphs, Norman 
Winters and Bob Adams. Coach Woody Fletcher did an outstanding 
piece of work in getting track started and having a winning team. 

Baseball letters went to Sammy Andrews, Verne Martin, Dick 
Zeller, Paul Ralphs, Dave Elliott, Leland Brown, Bill Mardock, Elmer 
Kendall, Marvin Hampton and Nigel Shockey. 

***** 

Everyone who is interested in baseball at George Fox owes a debt 
or gratitude to Dick Isgrigg. Dick was baseball manager, and did one 
of the most outstanding jobs we've seen. The chief duty of the student 
manager is that of being groundskeeper. Dick spent a lot of time 
fixing the diamond this spring. 

Not only did Dick Isgrigg take care of the equipment and do the 
work on the field, but he also doubled as reserve catcher. Though a 
sprained ankle minimized his chances for duty in games, Dick was one 
of the most faithful in getting out to practice. 

***** 

There was one four sport letterman in school this year. He is 
Elmer Kendall, a freshman. Kendall, associate sports editor of the 
Crescent, earned the award in all major sports, football, basketball, 
baseball and track. 

Marv Hampton, Nigel Shockey and Dick Zeller each letterered in 
three sports. Hampton made his in football, baseball and track, while 
Shockey and Zeller earned their emblems in football, basketball and 
baseball.

Concordia will meet the George

in a battle to decide the Metro-

Quakers by one full game. A GFC 
victory would end the season in a 
deadlock between the two schools. 

Leading hitters on the squad are

Each are hitting .538.

Beg Your Pardon 

No folks, Kanyon hall is not go- 
ing to be dismantled. 

We apologize for two errors 
which appeared in the scoreboard 
column of the last issue. 

The new baseball diamond will 
be located on the north side of the 
gym instead of the south side, as 
was printed. 

The benefit program given by 
the Four Flats netted $700.00 in 
cash instead of $100.00.
